Why Didn't He Call? How To Handle Rejection

By

There's nothing worse than being rejected after a great date.

When a man stops calling within the first few dates, he has done you a favor. How can I say that? Well, he didn't waste months of Julie's time before disappearing. He quickly figured out the match didn't suit him and left her free to find a better man.

A man who stops calling has saved you a lot of pain down the road. If and when this happens to you while looking for love, remember it's a sure sign he was not the right man for you. Yes, it really is that simple.

Frankly, I am proud of Julie for not contacting him. That took guts and confidence. My best advice as a dating coach for women is this: "Why didn't he call?" is not the right question. Instead, ask yourself, "Who's next?" There are so many more men available to meet and date. Putting a positive spin on a guy not calling helps you dust yourself off and get back out there quickly to cross paths with a man who knows you are the one for him.
